That cat is in far to good condition to be a stray.

That is fucking fantastic! The only thing a (harbor) seal ever did for me was steal my ling cod right off the spear!

These two obviously know each other well. I wonder how long it takes to develop that kind of trust one 45 minute segment at a time...

He's in a full wetsuit: Must be cold. Yet, the vis is remarkably good. Where is this Witness? Please not an aquarium somewhere....

Puts me in mind of Captain Nimrods pet seal Ismay in the Dickwad production of 20k Leagues Under The etc....

You're welcome. But things aren't always so pleasant:
Two Rare Sea Lion Attacks Shut Down Aquatic Park in San Francisco

Two unusual sea lion attacks in San Francisco Bay at Aquatic Park led authorities to close the popular area to swimmers Friday as officials try to determine the reason for the aggressive behavior.

A sea lion bit a man in the groin area Friday morning as he swam in the waters off San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, said park spokesman Lynn Cullivan. It was “a very serious bite,” and the man was taken to a hospital, he said.

The cove hosts swimming and rowing clubs and is a favorite spot for dedicated swimmers. It’s usually a transit area for sea lions heading to Pier 39, where they normally congregate, Cullivan said.
[…]
Another swimmer was seriously injured Thursday after a sea lion bit him on the arm. Officers applied a tourniquet and he was transported to a hospital. Officials say he’s expected to recover.
[…]
The aggressive behavior is so unusual for sea lions that officials think the same animal attacked both swimmers, Cullivan said.

“It could just be a sea lion being territorial, or it could be an injured or sick mammal,” he said.
